Namespace request: SPC?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View

I am writing a module which performs calculations according to the
model of Statistical Process Control (SPC) which generates error
thresholds of normally distributed data from historical data.  It has
been used in manufacturing for a long time to tell whether a
particular process is in control.

I think the module belongs in SPC, as it does not quite match up with
the intent of Statistics::*.  SPC is more of a use of statistics than
it is a set of statistical functions.

Any comments?  Suggestions?

Statistics::SPC sounds better to me. The creation of new top-level
namespaces is frowned upon, and if it relates to statistics,
Statistics::* is probably a good place for it.

Thanks Mumia, that's what I have requested.


Perlib modules prob.

   I've installed the DBD::Oracle-1.19 module in a fairly unlikely place
(on a Solaris 9 domain):


and I'm attempting to make the following Makefile.PL  run

more Makefile.PL
use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
# See lib/ExtUtils/ for details of how to influence
# the contents of the Makefile that is written.
         'NAME'          => 'PDBA',
         'VERSION_FROM'  => '', # finds $VERSION
         'PREREQ_PM'             => { 'DBI' => 1.13, 'DBD::Oracle' => 1.19
}, # e.g., Module::Name => 1.1

  export PERLLIB=/var/tmp/perl/5.8.8/lib
stratus:pmitchel: perl Makefile.PL
Warning: prerequisite DBD::Oracle 1.19 not found.
Writing Makefile for PDBA::CM
Writing Makefile for PDBA::ConfigFile

I know the module is compiled and installed - and I've told it where to
find it. Why is Makefile.PL still not finding DBD::Oracle (note the perl
is /var/tmp/per/5.8.8/bin/perl, so shouldn't it know the module as well?)

Is there a method for querrying the perl install to see if it knows where
the DBD::Oracle module is?

Thanks fo rany advice, I'm one step away from using these routines and I
really want to!

Try this:

export PERLLIB=/var/tmp/perl/5.8.8/lib
perl -MDBD::Oracle -e 1

If you don't get an error message, the module was found. If you do get
an error message, I suggest also trying these values for PERLLIB:
